Yes, I think we'd better to use erofs_kmalloc(). :)

Actually, fault injection in erofs_kmalloc only affect erofs module, we can
expect that the range of fault can be limited in erofs code, rather than whole
kernel, so the test point can be aimed at more accurately.

I guess following f2fs is not bad.
